Friends of Barr Lake has tons of fun planned for the next few weeks. The 8th Annual Bald Eagle Festival is coming up on February 1st at Barr Lake State Park. In the past weeks, 70-80 Bald Eagles have been spotted in the park, so the Eagle Festival should give visitors a great opportunity to see these magnificent raptors in action!
Toddlers age 3-5 years (accompanied by an adult) will be treated to a special Toddler Story Time about The Red Fox in the Nature Center on February 6th at 10 a.m. Not only do they get to hear the story, but they will make a nature-related craft and enjoy a snack!
We will join Barr Lake in hosting a New Volunteer Open House on February 8th at 10 a.m.. We want to encourage members of the community to learn about Barr Lake and the types of volunteer opportunities they can choose to participate in. It’s a great time for everyone to find a way to give back to our community!
Also on February 8th, Kids, ages 4-8, can celebrate the heart of the season at Barr Lake during our Love is in the Air program. Bald eagles and great horned owls are the early birds of the nesting season. Learn about the unique courtship and nesting habits of these fantastic birds. Get a warm and fuzzy feeling with a related story, craft, and short walk. Program designed for kids, ages 4-8 years old.
